Re: Curious brockage
- I've seen a number of other brockages of this type (in-collar, with obverse design on reverse face) in which the brockage-maker was a cent struck on a split or rolled-thin planchet. It would appear that an abnormally thin coin has an easier time of evading the ejection finger than a full-thickness coin.
